Server reshuffle

My new server is up and running. I haven't done the skirt mod yet as temps are good. The case is very tight and therefore very poor cable management.


Case fan noisier than my fractal r5. Is there any point in changing the fans?

Wow. Just re-read this topic.

So I went from a massive and heavy Norco 20 bay rack case to a Fractal R5 to a Silverstone DS380 and now I am using a Qnap 653A.

The Qnap is slightly less than half the size of the Silverstone and much more underpowered specs wise.

The hdds are nosier in the Qnap too but the cooling is better.
